Segundo volante definition in FM:
The Segundo Volante is different from the deep lying playmaker in that their role is primarily a defensive one best suited to being paired with an anchor, and is also different from the ball-winning midfielder, in that they often run with the ball, or arrive with a late run, into the opposition area in much the same way a box-to-box central midfielder does.
With a support duty, the Segundo Volante will look to support the attack whilst picking and choosing his opportunities to arrive late in the opposition’s penalty area.
With an attack duty, the Segundo Volante will get further forward and frequently look to arrive late in the opposition’s penalty area as well as attempting more shots on goal.
This is a highly demanding role. So, a segundo volante must have at least 135 ability power which is huge. The most important attributes on this role are pace, stamina, tackling, passing, work rate, and positioning.
Since it is a role best suited with anchor, segundo volante mostly used in defensive tactics with two defensive midfielders. Therefore I don’t recommend you to use this role with a big club needs to win all the time.
